Kathy Galloway, brand and innovation consultat

I'm originally from NJ and got to Texas by way of the University of Texas at Austin, where I earned my MBA at the McCombs School of Business in 2004.   

 

I spent the first 5 years of my career at Pepsico's Frito Lay, learning the craft of data-driven, last-mile-execution, strategic CPG marketing.  I followed that with brand-building positions at large organizations that operated like start-ups and start-ups that were driven to be large organizations. I learned how to think like an entrepreneur while managing the complexities of century-old manufacturing and go-to-market system.  And how to thrive with smaller budgets and even bigger aspirations.  

In 2013, I started this company to find my own path to success and have since built a 6-figure company that uses scrappiness and talent to truly help other brand leaders succeed.   Our team has helped clients with projects that span the marketing playbook and I am proud that every single one has become a (many times over) repeat client or has generously provided a recommendation.  I am motivated by the fact that I can be a small part of their success.  I look forward to being a part of your success, too.
